Knowledge of visitor interpretation/Activities/Your Place
Introduce the process of interpretation
Collect facts/information introduce a personal aspect and create your first interpretation
(Part One) - Topic
What town, city, country do you come from? List some information (facts) about the place eg. population, location, industry it is based on, anything factual you can find
What about some of the experiences you had their - what was special about the place. How did it make you feel?
Was there a special place you liked to visit or play?
(Part Two) - Theme
Now incorporate your theme (you - past, present and future) into your topic. That is:
- your past life in "Your Place"
- your present life with regards to "Your Place" eg. do you still live there, have any contact with or long to go back to
- your future eg. do you see yourself staying, returning or never wishing to go back to "Your Place" - where else would you go?
- lets see if we can create a short interpretation from this - incorporating Tilden's Principles of Interpretation (below)
